Now the stars are fading in the morning light
And you're warm beside me in the early bright
You're the one I wanted, you're the one I need
And I feel so safe here and I feel so free

I'd like to freeze this moment, I want to take this time
I want to keep it with me, I want to make it mine
But why cheat the future, why be afraid
Cause when you have what I have, you know you got it made

Chorus
Like a lone tree standing on a mountain top
One that keeps on living, one that just can't stop
That's the kind of loving that I have for you
And when the storm is over, I'll be there and true

Many times I'm humbled by the ways of life
And how a man can stumble onto fate's sharp knife
But I'm never worried, no I'm never scared
When you're here beside me, I know that I'll be spared

Cause you don't take chances, you don't like loose talk
And your ways are constant, you're a solid rock
You're the one I wanted, you're the one I need
And you showed me a new life and you helped me to be

Chorus
